Comfort Keepers can help during this challenging time with compassionate end of life care in Guelph, Ontario
When a loved one has been diagnosed with an illness that offers only a limited life expectancy, it’s not uncommon for them to desire spending their final days surrounded by family at home. If you choose to provide your loved one with palliative or end of life care, you will soon find out it’s physically, mentally, and emotionally draining.
At Comfort Keepers, we can work with your loved one’s doctor or hospice agency to provide the support and assistance your family needs during this difficult time. Our caregivers can help take care of your loved one’s personal needs, do a little light housekeeping, and provide the emotional support your family needs.
